Welcome back to School

 2020-2021 begins atypically!

I am pleased to welcome everyone back to school and a special welcome to the new families who have joined our institution. We are very pleased and excited to have you with us! We are nearly done with the first week!

Learning for children as you are aware by now is home-based until campus reopens.  Our teachers have been working very hard over the last two weeks, in preparation for school to start. The programme setup looks very exciting and promising! I trust this is what your experience has been over the week with possibly some teething issues.

Each child will need access to a laptop and a reliable internet connection.  Ipads and phones are not devices that will help students as they do not support all requirements. Children in Early Years, in addition, will require an adult to assist them. The programme for the students in Early Years will be slightly different from those in Upper Primary. Open Days and timetables shared by class teachers should have provided you with an insight on the structure of the school day. 

We have completed three days of Virtual Open house and several parents joined us online. Must have been a different experience for both sides. "Different" but as we have seen, not impossible! Thank you for joining us virtually; this means a lot to us!

We understand some of you may be anxious or unsure of the platforms being used at school and you may need guidance separately. We are here for you. Please contact the teachers and fix a time during the working days, so they can help you individually. Our ICT helplines and email ids ( shared below) can also be used to share your concerns and enlist support.

We look forward to working and interacting with you on a face to face basis as soon as we can.

 Stay well and stay safe.
